-We each view the world differently. It is filled with an infinite amount of stories for each of us to tell while we create our own visual ideologies-
Helen Keller once said, “life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” As a photographer and videographer, I move through life viewing the world a little bit differently than others. My lens frames the unique beauty of my surroundings. Light and color blend in a kaleidoscope of constantly shifting images. For me, the adventure is finding that one moment that makes others pause and wonder. It’s the adventure of making moments last forever with a single click. The world is filled with breathtaking vibrancy, and it’s my mission to capture as many of those moments as possible.
